TIP #2 – TPT Tech Support Staff
Do you have a tech question when you are downloading a TPT lesson? Can’t open a zipfile?

When you have any type of technical difficulty, you need to contact the tech support department of TPT. I have used their services many times. They are an amazing group of people! You will love them!
